Walk to Fight Suicide This Saturday
September is Suicide Awareness month. This Saturday you can walk to help those who are affected by it.
This Saturday, September 29th, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is hosting a Walk to Fight Suicide.
The Rockford Area Out of the Darkness Walk will be held at RVC's Starlight Theater from 10AM - 1PM.
Registration is free and open to the public. Online registration closes Friday at noon, but those who want to participate can register in person when check-in begins till the walk starts.
Donations for the Walk will be taken until December 31st.
They are currently at $20,603 of their $25,000 goal.
Thanks to the kindness of those who walk and/or donate the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is able to invest in new research, advocate for public policy, create educational programs, and support survivors of suicide loss.
Donors/Walkers have also helped the AFSP set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate by 20% by 2025.
